Bracket 3’s barrel racing is full of ladies that are used to success. Brittney Sporer, formally Brittney Barnett, is on her horse, Paint, is a fan favorite, dynamite little horse that clocks anywhere she goes. While Katie Pascoe’s big sorrel, Naughty, can never be underestimated.

One bull rider who has had all eyes on him since his NFR debut is Tristen Hutchings. The Idaho cowboy has been undeniable, already making his presence known this 2023 season. Another cowboy that is climbing the standings is Texas’ Tyler Taylor. With success coming his way in both Denver and at the Fort Worth Bulls’ Night Out, he is one to watch.
